Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the Clark University School of Professional Studies.

If you are looking for a pathway to promotion in your current career, or if you want to lay the groundwork for a career change, SPS will provide you with the preparation, skills, and professional connections to turn your dream into reality.

Our approach focuses on practical education, integrating hands-on experiences with coursework taught by professors of practice who currently are working in the field. Blending the practical and pedagogical has earned us a reputation for providing excellent professional preparation to students at all stages of their careers. Students come to SPS to gain the skills they need to get ahead. When they graduate, they leave with the tools needed to create positive, meaningful change in their jobs, companies, and communities.

Over the years, the character and focus of SPS has evolved to better serve our student community — but our commitment to exceptional career training has never flagged. Since changing its name to the School of Professional Studies in 2015, SPS has continued to meet the changing needs of today’s students, including international graduate students studying here in Worcester and at our campuses across the globe. Through online, accelerated, evening, and Saturday courses, we have made education available to even more dedicated learners.

We are always developing new and innovative programs for today’s professionals and building on our legacy of success. We hope you will join us as we write the next chapter of the SPS story.

Sincerely,

Mary M. Piecewicz, M.B.A.
Assistant Dean
